Recently our farm purchased a clean used 2003-2388. The combine has a AFX rotor. After we unloaded the small wire grates, we noticed all three concaves are full of interrupter bars......

We've heard the AFX can be difficult to set in wheat. Any one care to comment on their past 2388/AFX concave setup or experiences in wheat? Thanks, Jeff

p.s. We also have a clean 95-2188 for sale. I will post info and pics in the for sale section.

jm2388,

You shouldn't have any trouble setting the AFX. I have been running a AFX in wheat the last 2 years along side one 21 with a std rotor and one with a specialty. The AFX is essentially a specialty with a smoother feeding front end, and doesn't seem to be any different setting the machine. The biggest difference that I could see is that you can no longer rely on the "rotor rumble" to let you know when you are loading the machine to capacity. It feeds so much more smoothly and quietly, you have to watch your rotor RPMs a little closer until you get used to how quietly it operates. The little beeper that tells you the rotor has slowed down too much saved me a few times the first day or two

We have been running the AFX rotor for a few years now as well. Our interrupter bars are only on the back concaves. We are harvesting hard red spring wheat in Canada and the sample looks good. I think you will like the smoothness and quietness of the AFX rotor.
Last fall we had 3 different machines in the same Field and the 2388 was the smoothest and quietest of all.

Interrupter bars tend to fall off and go through the combine and wreck ****. I ran Harvest services wide wire concaves and used cover plates if its hard to thrash. Be sure to zero your concaves as per information on Harvest services website. Harvest concaves have more bar over the wire.
